Apple Working On iPad Gaming Attachment? -

 G4 has a great post about a potential accessory Apple has patented for extending its mobile devices' power to play games.

Having your avatar and your control scheme on the same surface is problematic for gaming -- your fingers totally get in the way-- so Apple is patenting a gaming attachment to seperate the two.

Apple is also looking into adding variations of the game-frame that include a camera, vibration, microphone, and an accelerometer.
